Mousehold Heath Defenders


Dawn is waking up the earth with golden rays of sun

Dewdrops twinkle brightly on the webs that have been spun
Silence from what man’s made still hovers all around
As song from mother nature simply glories in its sound
And underneath the canopy of luscious, weighty green
Life plays all around me and so much cannot be seen

With hands and back I feel the strength of solid, sturdy bark
With ears I hear the joyous birds that all sing like a lark
My feet are planted solidly on earth that holds and feeds
Such harmony with nature this is what my spirit needs
Slowly lips begin to smile as no-one else will know
Time to pause and just relax, begin to watch the show

Suddenly the shafts of light break through to spear the ground
And in each one a thousand flies appear to dance around
They float and hover , twirl and spin in beams of tapered sun
And each one seems to shout at me ‘yippee I’m having fun’
Watching spellbound as they whirl within the cone of light
My vision travels upwards until all are gone from sight

Breeze blows soft, caressing leaves that sway and break the beam
But not enough to interfere and spoil my silent dream
Slowly, gently, eyes close down, my vision’s from within
And floating softly in my mind , a new show can begin
My face upturned, my spirit soars into the beam of light
Warms and calms all silent fears that crept around last night

And so the beauty all around’s absorbed and held within
In just the way the sunny warmth caresses through my skin
Mousehold springtime once again can haunt me with its charms
Its peaceful morning magic dodging capture in my arms
All too soon the moments passed , I hear the distant hum
Of traffic on the ring road and a new day has begun……
